What materials did you use? Polyester jersey knit, fusible batting tape, and Bottom Line thread.

What are you most proud of? This fabric is so drapey, and perfect for a skirt! I just drew the pattern down until the straight side was 38 inches long. The bottom circumference is 60 inches. The batting tape did make the hem a little tight, so next time I might stretch the fabric a little when I iron on the tape.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? On every skirt that I have made from this course, the waistband is always too loose. I looked, and the waistband pattern for the medium yoga pants is 1 1/4 inches smaller than the medium waistband for the skirt. Why is that? So I used the yoga pants waistband pattern, and it worked perfectly!

3 o f these skirts eh?! ( that's Canadian for, I'm not sure what y'all say) ...that says a lot about the pattern. It's on my to do list for next week. :) As always, nice job

That's beautiful! I want to make a longer skirt as well. How much fabric did you need to make it your length?

Thank you!!! I took 2 yards.

That looks great! How did you extend the length. In other words, did you just go straight down from longest pattern or is there some flare?

I went straight down. But next time I'm going to add some flare.
